Although my background predisposed me for the addiction. As a youngster,
succulents (mostly cacti), later, when I had a perfect situation orchids

more typical bulbs was prompted by the desire to have something to occupy
the winter garden when the Amorphophallus are all dormant...and the South
African mediterraneans fit the bill...along with others more or less
suitable to San Francisco's conditions.
